Staples Distribution Center


For ease and speed of construction, as well as their excellent thermal properties, Poirier Fontaine Architects of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, specified 40,000 sq. ft. VICWEST Insulated Metal Wall Panels with a Surrey Beige Colorite SMP paint finish for the exterior of a large Staples distribution center in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada. The building was completed in early 2007 and was VICWEST’s first insulated metal panel project in the Maritimes.

The Micro-ribbed Profile panels are 3” thick, 42” wide. The face and liner sheets are 26-gauge Galvalume-coated, stucco-embossed steel.

Flynn Canada of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia was the project’s contractor.
